We were a group of 9 with adults, teenagers and 11yr olds.
From the first contact with this company they were fantastic to deal with, very easy and clear on all requirements.
Our driver sampath was amazing, very interesting to talk to, a great driver and had good knowledge on his country.
We couldn’t have asked for any better in a company or a driver and we would highly recommend them.

We organised a complex route through sri lanka and were very pleased to find that the drivers especially Manju had brilliant local knowledge and were able to make expert suggestions on where and when to do particular activities. We also ended up doing a few things that we had not planned such as ayurvedic massage and a trip to botanical gardens on their recommendation which turned out be excellent decisions.

No hesitation in recommending this company and our driver Tharaka. Our trip was perfect. Comfortable A/C car and Tharaka couldn't have been more professional and helpful. I like to think that we developed a friendship during our time together and whilst Tharaka was very knowledgeable about the country/culture he was very grateful for some information I provided him with about wildlife in particular birds. For the record our itinerary was Negombo - Habarana - Kandy - Ella - Tissa - Mirissa including the major sites and Yala Safari. If your looking for a company and driver use SPLD and ask for Tharaka.

Review of: travel

We couldn’t fault this company from start to finish. I emailed Mr Jaya numerous times before our trip seeking advice on our itinerary and he answered every question promptly, thoroughly and politely. He was very patient given my incessant questions. Thanks to his advice we planned an amazing trip which all worked well. I specified that I didn’t want to be taken to any places which pay commissions for sales like many tours do and our driver honoured that. Our driver, Tharaka, was amazing. His driving skills surpassed anything I’ve ever seen, getting us safely to every destination despite the crazy Sri Lankan drivers, stray dogs, cows and even elephants on the road. He always greeted us with a smile and it was clear our well-being was always his priority. It was important to him that we enjoyed our trip. He was accommodating to our every request, explained things about SriLanka and guided us along the way. Even though the drivers are not tour guides as such, Tharaka still gave us some information about places and showed us the way. He was available for us at whatever time and for as long as we needed. He helped us buy tickets and the company even booked our safaris for us. The car was always clean and comfortable and water bottles provided. I would never travel around SriLanka any other way.

Nipuna made our vacation easy and enjoyable. He is a fantastic and safe driver, very reliable and friendly with a nice, clean car. Communication was always straight forward and trip planning very flexible. I do recommend Sri Lankan Drivers.
